Portland natives Clark Stiles and Nathan Khyber co-founded the Good Listeners in 2006, following a move from the rainy northwest to Los Angeles. The pair recorded their debut album, Ojai, in ten short days, and their contribution to the Devil Wears Prada soundtrack helped increase their fan base on the West Coast. The release of a second album, Crane Point Lodge, followed before the year was up. After adding drummer Derek Brown and trumpeter/keyboardist Stewart Cole to their touring lineup, the Good Listeners spent much of the following two years on the road, capturing the experience on videotape. The footage was later used in a documentary film, Don’t Quit Your Daydream, which detailed the Good Listeners’ struggle as an independent touring band. The film was released in 2009, along with a studio album of the same name.
